Leviathan – True Traitor, True Whore (2011)

316605   Leviathan’s latest release, True Traitor, True Whore, is a raw, angry, and mostly spontaneous catharsis resulting from mastermind Wrest’s (tattoo artist and respected USBM musician Jef Whitehead) arrest on allegations he beat and raped his ex-girlfriend with his tattoo equipment; allegations Wrest adamantly denies, supported by his friends and peers (including Nachtmystium front man Blake Judd). Upon release from jail on $100,000 bond, Wrest wrote (most of) and recorded True Traitor, True Whore under the keen ear of producer Sanford Parker. What resulted was something truly black, truly cold, and seething with anger.

   The atmosphere is exactly what I expected it to be, knowing of the inspiration. Wrest, as usual, has no trouble setting the tone and sending it straight into the core of your being. This album is a must-have for any fan of metal.

Order this album from Profound Lore

Afterglow & Regret

Here is a two-song single Afterglow & Regret. I recorded this a few months ago and think it should not get lost amongst the rubble of unused recordings. I am releasing it now as a spur of the moment whim. Enjoy?
